An impressive volcanic plug jutting out from the Santorini caldera just West of Imerovigli. It was the most important defensive castle on the island, and one-time capital of the island under Venetian nobility. A small city grew under the rock numbering 200 houses. Numerous earthquakes in the 18th century plunged many of the cliff-clinging structures into the sea and caused it to be abandoned. Little remains today except a few wall and cistern fragments. It is a popular hike/destination on Santorini. A 10 foot 3/4 class scramble gets to the top, though the rock offers opportunity for developed climbing routes on every side.
